A Second Preview for The Radical's Handbook

+++Incoming Astropathic Transmission+++

Greetings Dark Heresy fans!

I was thinking about the Dark Heresy Adventure Contest for this year (see below), and it struck me that one thing many writers, including myself, really value is inspiration.

Radicalism exists within all three Ordos of the Inquisition, from Hereticus to Malleus to Xenos. It is likely that the Ordo Xenos provides some of the most mysterious Radicals, for many who succumb to the lure of the alien never return, and few are able to master the intricacies of non-human philosophies and technology in balance with their duties to the Inquisition.

Therefore, I found a good section of The Radical’s Handbook to present as a bonus second preview for the book—take a look at the mysteries of Seedworld AFG: 218, one of the xenos sites that are explored within the pages of this heretical tome.

Hopefully this preview not only whets the appetite for The Radical’s Handbook but it also provides some new ideas and concepts for a Radical-themed adventure entry into this year’s contest. I am really looking forward to seeing the entries this year, so if you’re thinking about entering, now is the time!

Adventure Competition

Don’t forget that the 2009 Dark Heresy Adventure Contest is going on right now! You have until November 30th to write up your adventure, and this year’s theme is all about the Radical factions of the Inquisition.

Dark Heresy is a roleplaying game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the grim darkness of the far future. Players take on the roles of Acolytes serving the Inquisition, rooting out heresy and corruption from within the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man.

Is it really that hard to open a dictionary before making statements like that?

It's a UK source.

Supercede is Queens English.

Don't understand why my comment got deleted. Supercede and millenia are not British spellings; they are misspellings. They don't even need a proofreader - they should have been caught by a spellchecker.

About the spelling, angryboy2k - I think that's bloody British, mate!

I hate to bitch about what's going to be another fine product but don't you guys have spellcheckers or proofreaders? Two paragraphs in and there are two spelling mistakes: supersede (not supercede) and millennia (not millenia).

 That looks awesome!  Seriously, this is the kind of stuff I've been waiting to see published since DH was first released.  If this is an indication of the quality of the rest of the book I can't wait!
